Saudia begins flights to Mauritius

Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia) will begin scheduled flights between Riyadh and Jeddah to Mauritius from Sept. 14.
Mauritius is the third new route for the airline this year and 87th destination overall.
The island provides a variety of attractions, such as marine and eco-tourism ventures, diving, beaches and much more.
For the first time, the two nations will have regular scheduled flights, proving a seamless link for passengers from Mauritius to visit the Kingdom.
Director General of Saudi Arabian Airlines Saleh bin Nasser Al-Jasser said: “As a full-service carrier, Saudia provides an extensive selection of routes for leisure and business travelers alike. The start of services to the island of Mauritius provides guests with a unique destination to visit. We thank the government of Mauritius and the civil authority for welcoming Saudia and extending their full support.”
Flight SV481 will operate from Riyadh to Mauritius, with a brief one-hour stop in Jeddah. The total flying time to Mauritius is nine hours from Riyadh and seven hours 20 minutes from Jeddah.
The three-times-weekly service will be operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in a two-class configuration of 24 fully-flat seats in business class and 274 seats in guest class. All aircraft in Saudia’s fleet include its inflight entertainment and connectivity system, which includes over 2,500 hours of movies, television programs, games, music and more.
Special introductory fares are now available for purchase and can be obtained from the airline’s website, its mobile app, or through a travel agent. Packages including flight, hotels and excursions can all be pre-arranged and booked through the airline’s tourism division Saudia Holidays (www.holidaysbysaudia.com).

Dodge supports women drivers in KSA

Dodge has unveiled a dedicated campaign to empower women drivers. Focused on social media and digital platforms, the campaign features a special video for the Dodge brand entitled “She Roars.”
With women driving in the Kingdom now a reality, there may still be some lingering questions in the minds of female drivers: “Am I ready? Is it really happening? Can I change the norm? Can I do it? Am I ready?” These questions are answered in the Dodge “She Roars” video with the empowering message — “I am Ready”!
Dodge’s campaign will highlight the advanced performance, features, technology and safety innovations available in Dodge vehicles that will make women drivers confident that they are indeed ready for the road.
Supported with a free pickup and delivery service and roadside assistance package available only to female drivers choosing any model from the Dodge lineup, United Motors Company (UMC) — the sole distributor for Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep, Ram and Mopar in Saudi Arabia — is offering a warm welcome to women looking to hit the road.
UMC’s roadside assistance package, also accessible via a dedicated mobile app, offers immediate support should there be any one of a wide range of common issues, including battery failure, flat tires, running out of fuel, traffic accidents and mechanical/electrical problems.
The Dodge range — Charger, Challenger, Durango and Neon — offers features such as LED headlamps, state-of-the-art TorqueFlite eight-speed transmissions, dual exhausts, leather wrapped steering wheels plus Alcantara and Laguna leather finishes. Among the many available safety features are blind spot and cross path detection, rear parking sensors, rear view camera and advanced air bag systems.
